Eye Candy! Bear Sees Colors by Karma Wilson
MOUSE AND BEAR ARE WALKING.
SO MUCH FOR THEM TO DO,
AND BEAR SEES... BLUE!
Out strolling with his trusty sidekick, Mouse, Bear suddenly becomes aware of
BLUE DRAGONFLIES, BLUEBERRIES...
Bear has as epiphany! Once he starts thinking about blue, he suddenly sees it everywhere, But then....
Hare howdy-doos them from down the trail and points out something ahead.... RED.
Ooh! Right away Bear sees red raspberries on the bush.
Down by the pond Badger bops by in red overshoes, just as Bear sees... YELLOW bees!
And suddenly there are yellow things all around. Wow.
But Mole has a different view down by stream. He spots GREEN.
Before the woodland stroll is done, all of Bear's friends get into the fun. The picnicking Wren, Raven, and Owl are just sitting down, when Bear sees something yummy and BROWN!
The well-browned cookies are passed around, and a good time is had by all in Karma Wilson's first concept book starring her beloved Bear, Bear Sees Colors (The Bear Books) (Margaret K. Elderry Books, 2014). As an introductory colors book for the nursery school set, as a review for older youngsters, or even as an easy reader, Wilson's rhythm and rhyme put kids through their paces, while Jane Chapman's familiar illustrations are just as charming as ever for fans of Wilson's best-selling Bear series, which began with Bear Snores On (The Bear Books) in 2002.
For a fascinating follow up, add Herve' Tullet's delightful new hit, Mix It Up! (see recent review here) to the color mashup to take the color session to a new level.
